Juneau County ranks among the least healthy in the state, according to the annual County Health Rankings released by the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The Rankings provide county-to-county comparisons within a state. Nationally, this year’s Rankings show that people living in the least healthy counties are twice as likely to have shorter lives as people living in the healthiest counties. Unhealthy counties also have twice as many children living in poverty and twice as many teen births as the healthiest counties. This year’s Rankings also feature several new measures including housing, transportation, and access to mental health providers. Juneau County ranks in the bottom quarter for health outcomes and health factors and it ranks in the bottom half of Wisconsin counties for physical environment, and the bottom quarter for health behaviors, clinical care, and social and economic factors. Other counties’ ranks are listed below.
